Sociology Major

What You'll Learn


Our unique sociology program is infused with tenets of anthropology and psychology to create a curriculum that compels students to use society as their laboratory and pay closer attention to the world around them. You’ll dig into the “why” of sociological theory and test concepts and ideas against what’s going on in your neighborhood, city and world. You will:

  • Investigate the causes and consequences of social factors, including religion, racial and gender identity, relationships and family background
  • Analyze empirical data to substantiate existing theories and use research to develop your own
  • Learn to identify trends and patterns in social statistics and apply them to critical platforms
  • Study the histories and interactions of multicultural groups around the world
  • Broaden your perspective beyond the classroom to apply what you learn to real-life problem-solving
